Moon River

Savannah Street

After a lovely stop in St. Augustine,FL we arrived in Savannah, GA.  
Early afternoon check-in and then out to the streets…
And what lovely streets they are!

Passed Moon River Brewery on our walk, and started humming as we walked…
Stopped to take a photo of a statue in a park…
Turned out to be a statue of Johnny Mercer – composer of Moon River.

A warm evening for a walk along the river, and through the beautiful park squares.
Loving the preserved architecture, history and plaques along the way…
Spanish moss in the trees, with colourful azaleas everywhere…so lovely.

Grateful today for
a safe drive here – made it through 2 tornado emergency alerts,
walking with my mate and exploring a beautiful place together,
and for a fun set of jazz that started early!

My Irish Charm

My Irish Charm

As we drove from Brevard County, our phones went off…
Emergency Tornado Alert… What?!!
Thankfully no incident and we made our way to St. Augustine.

Enjoyed walking through historic St Augustine.
After lunch, we continued on our way to Savannah, Ga.
Another Emergency Tornado Alert! with lightning striking the highway!

Got off the highway to wait out the storm, and then decided to carry on.
30 minutes later, we were in sunshine, and made it safely to the hotel.
Whew! No doubt, my Irish charm had something to do with it!

Grateful today for
making it to Savannah without incident,
the beautiful place that we are in – so looking forward to more exploring…
and for another city to do my favourite thing…
– hold my mate’s hand as we walk, explore and experience new places.

On the road again…

The BreakersLeft Pompano Beach this morning via the scenic A1A, aka Ocean Drive.
A leisurely drive to West Palm Beach,
where we stopped for lunch at The Breakers.

This was our second time at the Breakers,
the first time a few years ago to see D+K.
The perfect place to stop,
as we were on our way to visit them.

Loved our moment with D+K and their family.
Such a joy to meet their grandkids,
and all the others – son, daughter, mom and son-in-law.

Grateful today for
our place on the beach – a perfect place for my mate to recover,
time to take leisurely drives,
and for D+K – Thank you so much for your hospitality and a lovely visit! xxoo
